PE is compulsory throughout Key Stage 3 and 4.
PE develops students’ competence and confidence in a range of physical activities and enables all young people to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activityboth in and out of school. As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do and getting involved in physical activity helps students to make informed choices about lifelong physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.
PE helps young people to develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, students learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations and have the opportunity to take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating.
